Yes, do tell about the head. My buddy has a flow bench. Might have to put him to work this winter.

Gros Buck - Assembler!? I read the manual, once .

Went out for some late afternoon urban dirt yesterday, ended in bed. Started ride with 15 minute idle reset. Thirty mins of city travel had a number of stalls. Got to dirt and stalling / rough running increased to point where I headed back to road after just 15 mins.

Cut the bike off while waiting on a train and wouldn't restart. Let it sit for a bit and try again, nada. Finally got a sign of life but turned into a back fire which separated the throttle body from the motor. I'm not in one of the better parts of town so opt for phone and charge card evac before sun goes down and drug lords come to check on their labs.

Back at the house, refix tb, starts right up. pos.

I know a guy with a nice XR600R he'd probably sell you. I think you already have his number

Got my head back from the guy that cut the valve seats. He thinks that the seats were originally cut wrong on the right side from the factory. The left side exhaust was still at 2 mm which is new spec, while the right side exhaust was 1.1 The right side intake had no seat at all and the left side was at .9 mm. Anyway, all 4 are at 2 mm now so should be good for another 27K miles at least.

He also confirmed the valve guides were good. Now I just have to get around to putting it all back together.

If you are not going to do ride in deep ruts or between big rocks the Fastway Adventure pegs are fantastic for giving stable and comfortable footing all the time, even better than the KTM Rally Replica pegs.

For enduro type riding both are a bit too wide IMO.

I like my Pivot Pegz. you can configure them to lower 10mm, and move rearward 5mm. They cost about the same as the KTM Hardparts pegs, that give the same amount of relocation. I have not put hands on the hardparts pegs, but I think the PPegz mounting system is better. IMO.

If you need even more legroom Motobau makes "Bear traps" which are 3 cm lower than the originals:

No doubt. .

Starts with choke, idles with choke, bogs and dies with throttle. We are going for carb rebuild this afternoon. At least no Austrian code monkeys in play. Cooler will be open, game on small screen - wanna swing by

I'm changing my stock tires out.
Should I be able to remove the spacer in the rear sprocket?
When I spin the spacer, it feel kind of grimey. I want to take it out and re-grease it, of course.
I can't remove the dang thing. I dont want to pry it out because the sorounding metal "nilos ring " is very soft.
On other bikes I have I can, so I was wondering....but in the 690 owners manual, it doesnt mention removing and inspecting that particular spacer.
Maybe it was overtorqued in the factory? Should I go to my crappy dealer? Doubtful there is any real problem.....besides being anal retentive...just wondering.

I wanted to do the same but no luck. Sounds and feels like there's sand in there and I want it out!
Guess the only way is a new one...

Really?!
Crap!
This seems like something that can happen over and over again, even if you replace the bearing,nilos ring and spacer....
Here's the link to the microfiche
http://partsfinder.onlinemicrofiche....=13&A=570&B=17

I think the bearing is ok because of the nilos ring?

stock tubes HD?

Oh another question...are the stock tubes for the bike HD?
I swapped them out for HD tubes I bought, but I really couldn't tell the diff.
Yeah, I'm dumb.
Either way, the stock tubes seem pretty decent (Pirelli).

Stock tubes aren't HD unless there was some kind of change in their spec.
There is a big difference between the stock tube and HD. Very apparent in comparison. But if you didn't notice...

It's worst then you think ... Each and every CPU has his own assembler. Piles of manual to read. One of many good reasons why assembler disapeared except for very low level routines.

Nice motor support ... Well done. Do you rebuild those motors that often ????

Is your bike still under warranty
